WATCH: Drunk bloke goes mad in an Uber and grabs drivers' steering wheel

funny shit 25/01/2019

Uber drivers have to put up with a lot of shit from boozed passengers, but this guy has just taken the cake.

Caught on driver Albert Castro's dashcam in the States, the pretty bloody scary moment is shown above.

Mr Castro said the man seemed like his "typical drunk weekend passenger" before things took a nasty turn. 

"He goes, 'Oh, you're gonna crash.' I'm like, 'No, I'm not gonna crash.' He's like, 'No, no, you're gonna crash,'" said Uber driver Albert Castro. "I'm like, 'No.' And he's like, 'Ah,' and he laughs and then drifts away. And then about two seconds later he pops back up, grabs the wheel and yanks it and we fly across two lanes of traffic," said Castro.

"He goes, 'I love you, brother.' And he lunges for the wheel and grabs and pulls it," Castro recalled. "And it literally was every ounce of strength I had to keep us from ... I still don't know how we didn't crash."

The driver then stopped the car in the middle of the highway with his hazard lights on to stop anyone from getting hurt. The police were alerted via the driver's panic button, and put the passenger under arrest.

Be safe out there this long weekend lads, no funny business in the Ubers please.
